How to Track Changes in PowerPoint

2021-10-29 16:32:32 • Filed to: PowerPoint Features • Proven solutions

How do you track changes in PowerPoint? Unlike Microsoft Word, PowerPoint does not have a good tracking changes feature. However, this does not mean that you will not track the changes in PowerPoint, but you have to have a copy of the file that you are sending it for review to compare and merge it. Wow, you might find that complex, but here is a simplified guide on how to track changes in PowerPoint.

How to Track Changes in PowerPoint

Tracking changes in PowerPoint is similar for Office 2019/2016/2013/2010 versions. Assuming you are doing a presentation for your company and you want your seniors to review your presentation, you will have to send them. Once you send them, you can then track changes. Let's look at how to do that.

Step 1. Create a Copy of Your Presentation

First, you need to create a copy of your presentation by saving it on the cloud storage or external drives so that you can compare it later. You can then send or share the presentation with the person you want them to review your document. Once they have reviewed, you can download both the copy and reviewed the presentation.

Step 2. Open the PowerPoint Presentation

Now open the copy with PowerPoint and click on the “Review” > “Compare” button. Then a window pops up, and you can upload the reviewed document, and finally click the “Merge” button.

Step 3. Track the Changes

You can now track the changes in your presentation. On the right side, you will see the options of the review comments. To accept changes, navigate to the menu bar and click on the “Accept” button. You will get an option to “Accept All Changes to This Slide” and "Accept All Changes to the Presentation” option.

Step 4. Delete the Comments (optional)

You can also reject or delete comments on the slide. Click on “Delete” and choose either to delete comments on the slides or on all the presentations. You can also click on the specific comment and click on the delete comment. Once you have tracked changes on PowerPoint and made the changes, you can then save the file.
